For those of us looking to care for the planet, we need to get back to reusing. And, when items can’t be reused, we need to find ways to repurpose them. Reusing refers to using items more than once whilst recycling means putting a product to a new use instead of throwing it away.
300 million inkjets sold in Europe per year
Only 15% of all inkjets sold are remanufactured
45 million cartridges end up in landfill in the UK
Cartridges can take up to 1000 years to decompose
The lifespan of ink cartridges can be optimised by reusing & recycling them as many times as possible
Reusing and repurposing don’t create pollution. Rather, items are made useful as they are.
90% of people say they would reuse and recycle more if it were made easier
A reused product can be back on the shelves again within a single month
Reusing and recycling creates 6 times more jobs than landfilling and 36 times more than incinerating
